NewsfilmOnline goes live

I am delighted to report that the NewsfilmOnline (NFO) project – a joint venture by ITN, Reuters and the BUFVC – has gone live. The archive allows academics at Universities subscribing to the BUFVC to access and download copies of significant news stories. Several of these are relevant to teaching of bioethics and will form the basis of forthcoming posts on this site. From early experiments with the new service it looks like you need to log on from an institutional computer to access the full functionality of NFO, although the database can be searched using any machine.

  1. It turns out that BUFVC membership and NFO membership are not synonymous. The best test to see if you have access is to visit http://www.nfo.ac.uk from an institutional machine and click the link “Does your institution subscribe to NewsFilm Online?”
